The future of work is a theme that is been discussed around the world. The recent What Next series fronted by Nigel Latta and John Campbell engaged the nation in a conversation on New Zealand 2037. They highlighted in the first episode the impact of artificial intelligence and robotics on our lives and how some jobs are already undergoing significant change.
In a recently released report, Australian researchers Philip Taylor and Warwick Smith suggest we are now being confronted by a fourth industrial revolution. They rightly note that while numerous reports have considered what this technological revolution will mean for the labour market, the specific impacts on older workers have not been discussed. I have invited Phillip Taylor to write a guest blog on one of the many provocative themes explored in the Per Capita report.
